    Re: Macbook Pro 3,1

    I downloaded and attempted to test the buntu mac iso but for some reason it doesnt even show up for me.

    I don't think there's much else you can do, did you try fallback mode on the regular iso ?...

    Hold the key, open refind, and then try to launch the installer.

    don't worry about the conversion it probably doesn't affect anything.

    that's the mode you want. use legacy, if you boot into EFI you'll have the same problem.

    I've had it with apple and windows too. Never looked back. Unfortunately no one makes hardware like apple does.
